Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
I have an 2004 atv Arctic cat 400 auto. I ran in a hot day and my o-h light was on but the fan did not start before. He started very late and he got off with the o-h light still on. I made the road remaining (~10 miles) at high speed to vent the radiator always with the o-h light on. Was it dangerous for my motor/transmission and where is the problem?
Yes it was bad to run the engine hot. When the light came on you should shut the macine off and take it an authorized repair facility as soon as possible. Your problem could be electrical or something as simple as the radiator is low on coolant or the cooling fins are clogged with dirt and wont allow air to pass through them. In any case you should take the machine to an authorized repair facility that will warrant their work and use good parts to fix the problem.
